The team at FIAT of Winter Haven does its best to ensure that everyone who visits our showroom has a great experience. We go the extra mile to explain special features, FIAT financing, and other things that routinely raise questions for our customers. If you’re visiting us to test drive a new FIAT car, we’d like to show you how to get the most out of the experience. 

The Mental Game

Your test drive starts long before you’re behind the wheel, with the research you’ve done to pick the vehicles you’ll be driving. Take notes as you go; it’s an open-book test.

  • Which model would you like?
  • Are there specific options, or a certain trim, you’d like?
  • What features, like a premium sound system or navigation, would enhance your drive?
  • What questions have you encountered in your research?

Bring the Essentials

Besides your questions, there are some other things to have with you. Your license and proof of insurance are especially important, but they’re not all. You’ll also want your manual and title for your current car if you’re going to trade it in. And if you’ll be applying for FIAT financing to lease or buy your FIAT 500, bring proof of employment and other financial information. If you’re not sure what you should have, call ahead and we’ll fill you in.

Drive Time

It can take a couple of tries to find the right fit. Don’t be afraid to go over the car with a fine-tooth comb. You’re going to be spending a lot of time in those seats, staring out that windshield, eyeballing the instrument display, and using the infotainment system. Make sure each is comfortable. Also make sure that the acceleration, handling, and brake feel fit your driving style.

Most of all, don’t hesitate to ask questions. Your FIAT car is going to be with you long-term, so we want you to be comfortable with it today and for a long time to come. Visit your FIAT dealership near Auburndale FL at 190 Ave K SW today to arrange your test drive.
